The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area has many things to see and do. The region is rich in architectural beauty, especially in the downtown areas. Greek Revival, Gothic, 20th Century Contemporary, and many other architectural styles of buildings can all be found within blocks of each other.
There are currently several building projects in the city of Scranton's downtown totalling approximately $250 million in development.
Scranton consists of friendly neighborhoods bordered by the towns of Dunmore, Taylor, Moosic, Dickson City, and Clarks Summit.
Scranton is home to the Steamtown National Historic Site, and adjoining that is the Electric City Trolley Museum. You can visit working museums and see exhibits of earlier days of the transportation industry, both of which have roots right here.
The Lackawanna Valley and Wyoming Valley is rich in history. Lackawanna County's McDade park holds a unique tourist treasure in the Anthracite Museum, with a real working coal mine tour where you can go underground 300 feet!
